Until last year, Regional Waste Systems (RWS) was the end of the line for Greate
Until last year, Regional Waste Systems (RWS) was the end of the line for Greater Portland's trash, with flow control mandating that the region's waste go to the RWS incinerator. A decision by the U.S. Supreme Court put an end to flow control, and as a result the area's commercial trash haulers are taking their waste to Maine Energy in Biddeford, which charges $15 per ton less than RWS to dispose of trash. RWS will have to bill its 31 member communities to make up the shortfall. Details.
